Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille August 19 th 2015 “use that quote”


(photo credits: here)

Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille. I have a nice challenge for you I think. I am totally “crazy” about quotes that inspire me to write haiku. I even have challenged others to write haiku inspired on a quote of e.g. Einstein or Ghandi, but this week’s Heeding Haiku … I love to challenge you to write an all new haiku inspired on a quote by Confucius (551-479 BCE). I think this quote i have chosen can give you that inspiration.

[…] “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”.[…]

I think this will not be an easy task, but as an example I will give you a haiku written by Issa (one of the four greatest haiku poets)

toro-toro to shiriyake chidori mata doko e

slowly, slowly
plover with burnt tail feathers
where to now?

© Kobayashi Issa (tr. David G. Lanoue)

Have fun, be inspired and share your haiku inspired on the above given quote by Confucius with us all.

When you have written your poem(s), please TAG Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille and Mindovemisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.

About Chèvrefeuille

I am a Dutch haiku poet. And I am the owner and host of the weblog "Carpe Diem, a daily haiku meme" on Blogger (or Blogspot). I am writing haiku since the late eighties and in 2005 I became an international known haiku poet and in 2011 ten of my haiku were included in a worldwide anthology "Spasms of Light". With that anthology I became an even more known haiku poet. In October 2012 I started my daily haiku meme.

    I really really love the quote–it has sort of been my new life theme (since 2011), very positive, gets the focus off “speed”, puts it on quality and accomplishment.

    Ran across this a couple blogs today-one current and one that serves as an interactive set of lessons–that I thought you all would enjoy. BTW are you excited about tomorrow’s music prompt yet? 🙂
